I've heard that majority of the cities in Florida (Tampa, Orlando, Miami, etc) all have a high cocaine problem.

'Cocaine Cowboys' is probably one of the most fascinating documentaries I've ever seen, I didn't realize how much of South Florida's economy revolved around cocaine at the time. I knew it was bad but not like that.

When the crack epidemic started the cities that were hit the hardest were Oakland/San Francisco, Los Angeles, NYC, CHicgao, and Detroit. I know that all these cities still have major problems with this particular drug.

i have to disagree with you here. i read up on the crack epidemic and read that chicago never had one. chicago gangs wouldn't let it happen (atleast in the late 80's and early 90's). so when they finally did allow crack, it wasn't as bad because people were already aware of what it could do. if im wrong, anyone feel free to correct me.

now, let me just say, crack was a problem in every major city, even chicago, but all im saying is that it probably wasn't as bad there.
